First: my videos from yesterday’s Mass Lobby for libel reform!

1. Simon Singh’s speech

Simon reiterates the extent of the problem; far beyond his own case, though of course that has had the most impact on his (and his long-suffering wife’s!) life.

2. Jack Straw – part 1, part 2

Other links of interest:

Jack Straw on the BBC re: libel reform

Jack of Kent on the possibilities of the libel reform campaign

Details of a recent legal threat received by the LayScientist

The Times Online on free thought

David Colquhoun on herbalists in the EU

Evan Harris on some scary, scary new plans regarding scientists being required to ‘make politicians trust them’… eh? Oh dear.

Finally, some more brilliant Big Libel Gig photos from Kelly Haddow.
